Product Description

Review

Finding Sky is something really unique - it's not about vampires, werewolves or even fallen angels. Tingly, romantic, funny in places, warming, adventurous are just a few words I could use to describe Finding Sky (Books4Teens)

'With so many paranormal romance titles now available for the YA market, Finding Sky is something a little bit different. Rather than relying on popular paranormal archetypes, Joss Stirling has created a fascinating world within our world where those with a variety of psychic powers live among us.' (iwasateenagebookgeek.com)

'It's perfect. I simply adore this world, with its humour, love, action and suspense . . . her writing [is] beautiful and her characters realistic.' (thebookaddictedgirl.com)

Book Description

Finding your soulmate has never been so dangerous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh-so-romantic! 16 Sept. 2010
Format:Paperback
Ladies and gentlemen, you'd want to read this book. You ladies will sigh and swoon over and enjoy the romance between soulfinders - and the gents can note down a few pointers from the Benedict boys. I was yearning for good YA romance novel when I started Finding Sky and I got exactly what I needed. It was the cure to and signalled the end of my reading break!

When I mention 'good YA romance', I'd like to emphasise on 'good'. I don't favour romances without substance and am often critical of those whose transition from attraction to love is lightning quick - Finding Sky is neither of those. Although primarily a book about soulmates, you won't find the characters falling head over heels in love in the span of a few pages. The romance isn't sappy or boring, nor plain or forgettable. It highlights the most important aspects of romance in a way that is real and tangible to every reader - trust, comfort, acceptance. The romantic tension arrives in a different form; I welcomed the break from the usual and the stereo-typical.

The narrator, Sky Bright, is one of the few characters I can personally relate to. Joss Stirling has captured exactly how it feels to move out of your comfort zone; believe me, I have been there myself. Her descriptions of Sky's thought and emotional process is spot on, never straying or exaggerating from just the precise feeling or thought. The author's description of trauma is vivid, real and true. Without the jargon to weigh it down, it is portrayed in a way that is accessible to every reader. Interestingly, the themes and motifs of this book is channelled through Sky, so in that sense she is very diverse character indeed. Of course, a special girl needs a special boy - enter Zed Benedict.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very new idea for YA! 11 Jan. 2013
By Bex TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finding Sky is definitely different that's for sure. It may have a typical boy-meets-girl and they fall in love thing, but the ideas behind it are really quite something. I've gotten so used to reading brilliant young adult fiction at the moment that it's hard to come by anything especially new or interesting but you know what, I'd never heard of a SoulFinder before. And that was more than enough to keep me glued to the very pages through the night.

Sky, our British leading lady, is okay. I didn't like her as much as I would have wanted to but she was quite funny which was nice. Zed, our leading American man, is better. Sky has moved to America with her family so is starting a new school. Now, this aspect of any young adult story is always something I love. Any mention of new schools, boarding schools or the like really interest me because we then get to learn everything from scratch along with the main characters which makes it more enjoyable from my perspective. As you might expect, Zed is beatifully hansome and arrogant whilst Sky is shy and a hidden beauty. BUT, little does Sky know, she's anything but ordinary. And neither is Zed.

After everything eventually goes as you anticipate, Sky is introduced to Zed's massive, and quirky, family. All of which seem to have a little more to them than initially seems. I won't explain what exactly Zed, his family and Sky are but what I will say is they all have very interesting abilities which are entirely explainable but VERY unique to the YA genre. The concept of the SoulFinder is equally interesting - two people who are destined to be together based on a particular feeling or sensation the two feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 14 Sept. 2012
Format:Paperback
I'm (unfortunately) no longer a teenager, but I loved this book and the next one too (Stealing Phoenix). In fact once I finished reading 'Finding Sky' I went back and read it again. I've never done that with a book and I can't quite work out why I like it so much.

It's the story of Sky, a girl that has a past so upsetting, that she has locked it away in head and can't remember her formative years. She also has some superpowers, but has also locked those away too and isn't really aware of what she can do.

Both this book and the next also centre around the Benedict family. A close-knit family with 7 sons, who are all gorgeous (of course), and all have a big secret to keep.

I agree with some of the criticism that the 'soulfinder' link and the effect that has on some people is a bit of a hard one to swallow but if you're up for believing that these things work differently for savants (savants are those with extra powers) than for non-savants, it is fine. Traditionally we think of couples meeting and gradually falling in love with each other (their soul-mates perhaps) but here we have to believe that savants find their soul-finder (a kind of one-in-the-world-only cosmic soulmate arranged pairing) and then 'have to' fall in love afterwards.

These issues really didn't bother me, but I gather from some other reviews that it was a deal-breaker for some. I do also find it a bit disappointing that the male characters have fireworks when they find their soulfinder, but the female feels very little. Why can't they both have fireworks?? (There is an explanation in this book for this, but it is similar picture in Stealing Phoenix without the same reason being applicable).
